Fail whale Cake

The “Fail Whale” is a fairly iconic image that anyone who’s used twitter has probably seen at some point, unless you never use the web interface or have been really lucky. This cake was created by Mariana Pugliese a cake designer from Buenos Aires.

Interestingly the Fail Whale was designed by a Chinese illustrator Yiying Lu and was originally an elephant:

Optimus prime cake…

Not quite as good as the pacman cake Jennie made for me this year, but given the response the pacman cake garnered yesterday I figured I’d post this.

Last year Jennie made me a transformers cake in the shape of Optimus Prime (I can’t really think of a good pun for that caketimus prime just sounds lame).

The cake is a mixture of carrot cake (My favourite cake) and chocolate cake (everyones favourite cake), the wheels were made from sugar icing and were ludicrously sweet.

Contrary to what many people seem to have inferred Jennie is not my girl friend, she’s my girl friends ex-flatmate, who just happens to be obssessed with making cake.

If people are still interested in Jennies cakes I’ll see if I can’t get her to dig up some more. Maybe even set up a cake blog for her.

Pacman Cake

My friend Jennie made me this amazing pacman cake for my birthday.

It’s a banana cake with yummy butter icing.

The Ghosts were banana, whitechocholate and cherry cupcakes covered in sugar icing. Everyone felt guilty eating them they looked so cute.

Of course that didn’t stop Annabel…

Shee looks a bit manic in that photo…
